I have been a mechanic for many years. I used to buy Napa Auto Parts almost always. I felt the parts were good quality, although more expensive than others. It does not pay to install poor quality parts on a car, they come back, and bite you! Unfortunately, a few years ago it seems Napa changed their policy on quality. This happened around the time they totally changed the on-line site. Around the same time, I started looking at Rock Auto on-line. Rock Auto offers each part by a few different manufacturers, quality levels, and prices. I started noticing that despite Napa still charging higher prices, they were now supplying the cheapest, lowest quality parts instead of the better quality they were known for. Given that, why would a person order from Napa, when Rock Auto is surprisingly lower priced, and you have a quality level choice . Napa seems to be riding on their previous well known name, while keeping the prices artificially high.
Some prime examples of this is, I purchased a starter solenoid, (eckland, Napa's electrical brand), as a preventative measure. The third start-up, after installing, the solenoid froze in the on position, with key off, and kept the starter spinning and engaged until I could unhook one battery terminal. Burned up the relay, starter, and a couple wires. I purchased a rebuilt alternator, took it from the box, and turned it, it felt rough turning, as if there was dirt in the bearing race or defective bearing components. I purchased Napa's best fuel pump, and it was very noisy from day one. I purchased a set of Napa Branded, 2 ton each, jack stands. One of them had a defective casting that would not allow the stop to lock in place. Although it seemed it locked, when weight was applied, it fell. I purchased rebuilt Ford Front calipers from Napa, and with in one year, the unplated soft steel bleeder screws has rusted solid to the caliper!
Are other people seeing this too??

Chang'an Automobile released the latest sales data: in November, Chang'an Automobile sold 118,902 Chinese brand cars, down 20.4% from last year. Among them, three SUVs, CS35 series, CS55 and CS75 have declined seriously.
Chang'an CS75 sold 12,036 vehicles in November this year, down 54.5% from November last year. From January to November this year, it sold 132,680 vehicles, down 39.2% from last year. At present, the preferential range of Chang'an CS75 is also very large. The preferential price of bare-car has changed from 0.6 million yuan to 15,000 yuan, and it enjoys 24-period interest-free loan policy.
Chang'an just launched a new model CS35 PLUS at the end of October this year. Now it is sold together with the old classic CS35. In November this year, 12,751 CS35 series two models were sold. Compared with November last year, the total sales of the two models were not as good as last year's single classic CS35, a 27.4% decline.
Chang'an CS55 has a relatively stable performance. It sold 15,777 vehicles in November this year, basically the same as last November, but fell by 7.2% compared with last month. Chang'an CS55 was replaced in August this year, but the results are not obvious. Sales this month are still lower than rivals Geely Boyue (19,575) and Harvard H6 (54,226).
